Walmart exclusive griddle packs a punch
This Walmart exclusive griddle is packed with amenities and much improved. After owning a 28” Blackstone griddle for years, I wanted an upgrade to one with a rear grease drain. I'm so glad I found this 36” griddle at Walmart. The paper towel holder, upgraded knobs, sturdier design, accessory hang pegs, dual foldable shelves, magnetic tool strip, and lid all come together you make a great griddle. Tip: After opening the propane tank valve. Turn on the far left burner first. Then light the next in line. This order allows them to light with enough fuel for full flames. If you turn them all on at the same time, you may not get enough fuel (gas) to each burner for a full flame.
This is a must have for everyone!
Bought this as a birthday gift for my husband., after reading many positive reviews. It was very easy to assemble, I did it on my own. The griddle is very heavy, so had to have my son help me to put it on. My husband has used this ever since to cook on. The burgers turned out great. Seasoned and cooked to perfection. We have also cooked fried rice, veggies, and a lot of breakfast on it. All the food tastes great, and it's easy to clean the griddle after use.
I purchased this Blackstone grill after my regular grill stopped working. I've used it several times a week, and it has yet to disappoint. There is definitely a learning curve to it, but it's really not much harder to use than a normal grill. The seasoning process takes me a few extra minutes at the end of my grilling, but it is definitely worth it. I've made hibachi, hot dogs burgers, bacon, breakfast foods, and steaks on it so far. I was initially worried about not having a smoky taste from a normal grill, but I don't even notice. Everything has tasted great! I am so happy that I've invested in this grill, and I can't wait to try even more foods on it!
New Surround Modifications
By it self, it's great, shelves are up near the grill. But I wanted to add the surround for the extra room, since the new style is rear grease made sure I bought the correct surround. The surround is at the same location of the shelves so you need to remove the shelves to add the surround. Now the box shows pictures of the surround with the shelves located under the surround. This made the magnetic holder and the end knobs for tools no longer on the cooking station. By drilling a few holes and using self drilling screws I mounted the right shelf just below the upper square tube, moved the paper towel holder under the station. The right side shelf didn't have the magnetic holder so I removed the one from the left and added it to the right side, made it easier for me since I'm right handed. and with the cover still being able to cover everything. I didn't add the left side because I didn't want to cover the propane tank, I still may but I don[t think I need one,
Once You Go BlackStone, You Don't Go Back!
There are so many things you didn't realize you couldn't do with a grill that you can do with a griddle. On top of that, if you still long for that grill, you can purchase the grill top and swap it out in like 10 seconds. If seasoned properly and kept out of direct weather, this griddle should last you a decade! I chose this particular model, specifically from Walmart, because of the great features that you cannot find anywhere else for this price. Namely the tool hooks on each side, collapse side shelves, retractable paper towel holder, magnetic tool hold on front, locking casters, shelf, and the all important lid. You will pay another $100 for this on Amazon! Buy this griddle - thank me now and later!
Great addition to our backyard kitchen
Bought this for the hubby since he's been hinting for almost a year now how much he could do if he only owned one. We're very impressed with this as it's very sturdy and the perfect size. Also, this one comes with a cover for the griddle area so that was an added bonus. I would recommend buying a cover for it though to keep it looking good.
I love this grill. it was fairly easy to put together. the how to videos online are excellent if you have any questions. we have cooked on it everyday, breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I can't wait to buy more accessories!
Shipped as stated. Arrived on time. I'd would order it again and would recommend others to do so. Just had it a couple of weeks and I like it very much.
Hard to beat value
This was my first griddle purchase. I was debating between the blackstone and the campchef but ultimatley decided to save the money and try the blackstone. I am glad I did becuase the size and value are excellent for the price. I love the fact that the hard cover was included, each burner has its own ignition spark, both side shelves can be folded and it is very easy to convert to natural gas with a seperate kit also sold at walmart. It will honestly be very hard to beat this value with another product. It also seems that this 2020 model has addressed all of the issues of previous models with the exception of leveling legs. That is my only complaint about it is that it cannot ve leveled. I need to make a base for griddle to be level on my patio which has a noticeable pitch for the storm drains
Get this griddle...You can thank me later
I may never cook on anything else again. I mean I love this griddle. I don't normally write reviews but felt I needed to share my praise of this unit. Season the cooking surface and edges to start with before using and lightly oil it down after each use. Numerous videos on internet about seasoning and cooking with it- check out Todd Toven YouTube videos. I recommend getting a soft waterproof cover to protect it if leaving unit exposed to elements. Only negative comment is side handle is about useless with tank in place- side shelf doesn't go completely down, hits tank( no big concern for me as I don't move griddle). Don't lift unit by side shelves. Get one, eat good and be happy!!
EXCELLENT addition to the outdoor kitchen!
My husband bought this on my birthday (for himself, LOL) but here were are almost 3 months later and we have had some of the most amazing food! Since we've not been eating out as much, the timing was perfect. We've had smashburgers, hibachi, bacon, seared steaks, philly cheese steaks.. the list goes on. Don't bother buying the off brand utensils to try to save money, we eventually ended up buying Blackstone brand later and liked them more.
assembled the griddle and found out that the ignitor button is missing...not only that the website stated that the part is out of stock there was this odd red sticker in the ignitor area written in chinese characters(used google translate) saying FAILED...still don't know if the ignitor works
love it! cooks everything fast! takes practice to get everything off at one time but so good. couldn't figure out why burners weren't getting super high on second time using it, was worried it was broken, but youtube to the rescue! make sure you open up your propane first then turn knobs to start.
Never knew I needed a griddle !
The Griddle arrived damaged from the shipper but Walmart made it right . I have done maybe a dozen cooks on it and absolutely love this thing . Its easy to put together and a pleasure to cook on . We highly recommend a flat top Griddle . Blackstone was our choice due to the other reviews and research we have done . Do your research and feel good about your purchase . We love ours and happy with the choice .
This is awesome, have cooked the following: burgers, eggs, bacon, pancakes, hash browns, corned beef hash, Philly cheesesteaks, stir fry, wings, chicken thighs. Get one!!!
Love it! We use it alot for making tacos. BUT when it comes to taking it home just know it is EXTREMELY heavy. 2 Walmart workers loaded it onto the truck for us but once we got home, me and my mom realized there was absolutely no way we were going to be able to carry it off the truck and into the backyard. We cut open the box and carried the parts in separately. The griddle is the heaviest part. Assembling it was frustrating for me since I'm not really one to build stuff but it got done! Took me about an hour and a half or so. All the little parts (screws, etc.) we needed were included.
Awesome Everything cooked on the grill has been delicious. Don't forget to season the cast iron first.
just bought my New griddle, so far so good.Made Some tacos and quesadillas, came out good. Just the way I like them. This weekend I'll be cooking breakfast.
So much easier to use and more versatile than a grill. The capacity is much larger too. On top of that the price is very reasonable for what you get. How often does that happen!
Hottest new item: So hard to get, but soooo worth it. Forget BBQ's this is it!!!! So sturdy, great grill, heavy duty. Gets very hot!!
